heard from the fbi director and the director of counterintelligence, counterterrorism. they both basically said this problem is getting much worse than it has in the past. international terrorism and even home grown terrorism. the president ever from the very beginning is crumbling before our very eyes. i would hope that mr. romney would see this as an opportunity to come out very strongly and say, look, look at what has happened in egypt, libya, syria, iran, of course, is taking over iraq. you are having problems and saudia arabia, pakistan, afghanistan seems to be going in the wrong direction. there is not a place in that entire area where we can call terribly friendly at this point and quite frankly could explode. lou: there are a host of questions, obviously, that pertain to the days we are living through here. ambassador, very quickly, the idea that the hundred governor romney has not responded with great sharp focus, he is disappointing to many. there seems to as well be, as i brought up, with ed henry at the white house, not only has our president not addressed our america
details . what can you tell us? >> an f.b.i. team assign to the murder of ambassador chris stevens and three others is lookking into whether the group of 100 attackers had inside help from the private security contractors whom the state department had hire to guard inside of the benghazi conflict. susan collins asked the national counter terrorism the question in a committee hearing this week. the state department hired blue mountain group out of wales to vet and hire locall guards. the contract was worth half a million dollars. indications that the local guards may have been casing the consulate were posted on a gaming website who said assuming we don't die tonight. one of our police that guard the compound taking pictures. he could have been referring to the libya government police. already thousands of libyans have taken it upon themselves at one of the armed militias that were involved. tens of this happeneds of anti-islamic protestors took to the street was benghazi and stormed the compound of a group that is allied with al-qaida. they burned the office and moved on to a secon
a building with a car bomb. the bomb turned out to be a dud and the seller an undercover fbi agent. prosecutors say daoud refused several offers to back out of the bombing plot. daoud's defense lawyer claims his client is just a misguided teenager, and the feds set him up. he'll stay in jail until his arraignment, about a week from now. the former comptroller of dixon illinois is facing a new round of charges. rita crundwell was indicted yesterday on 60 counts of theft... for allegedly embezzling more than 50 million dollars from the city, and using it to support her horse-breeding business. she was already facing a single federal count of wire fraud. she has pleaded not guilty to the federal charge. g-m is recalling more than 400,000 cars to fix a problem that could lead the vehicles to roll... when drivers think they're in park. the cars in question are the chevy malibu, the pontiac g-6 and and the saturn aura. the model years are 2007 through 2010... and the cars have automatic transmissions. g-m says it's aware of four crashes related to the problem but no injuries. the car
the attack. he said, get the fbi director on the phone. fortunately the instructions had been given to get the fbi director on the phone before he walked in, so we could say, he is right here, mr. president. he then talked to the vice president and talked to governor pataki and other leaders. he worked on remarks for the american people that he delivered before an audience of 600 people. he thought he was there talking about leaving no child left behind and education and said he was going back to washington, d.c. i knew he wasn't going back to washington ton d.c. he and i had quite an argument because he wanted to go back toe washington. see set service and pilot of the air force one didn't want to go back until we knew what happened. we went to louisiana. landed there. took some people off air force one. we flew to omaha, nebraska, strategic air command center and went down into a deep bunker. the whole time the president was deliberate, decisive, strong leader. he did not want to be disruptive to the responsibilities that were being met by the people getting planes safely on the ground a
and until the f.b.i. identified everyone involved and in the custody of the united states. this is while our foreign policy would be determined by half a dozen unruly people anywhere in the world. i've seen unworkable and unwise legislation before. this may win the prize. it would be a colossal waste of f.b.i. resources be impossible to implement and those in this country who believe in freedom of speech are we really going to fill up our prison with thousands of foreigners including those who engage in peaceful demonstrations because it includes them. are we really going to cut off aid to the government of egypt which has reaffirmed its peace agreement with israel, sent troops against the egyptian extremists in the sinai deploy police to protect the u.s. embassy and is negotiating an agreement to reform its economy. are we also going to cut off aid to israel, which we do, of course. so mr. president i ask my full statement be placed in the record. like so many republicans and democrats who have spoken against this, it makes no sense. the presiding officer: without objection, the full statem
. are they investigating the bank manager. >> the cops won't say but the f.b.i. pulled out box after box of evidence and on top of the apartment search, they impounded her vehicle which is interesting because the bank manager says she drove the vehicle alone from the apartment to the bank and she was followed in a white kia by the two suspects. apparently the robbers did their homework because not only did they not step foot in the bank but they had the bank manager toss the cash out the backdoor where there were no surveillance cameras leading some to wonder if the manager might have known the suspects. >> at this point we'll get all the leads that we have and all the information we have to determine the circumstances. >> reporter: police won't say how much cash the suspects got away with except to say it was significant. >> what else do cops have to go on? >> very little which is why police are retracing the path between the apartment and bae, trying to see if businesses in the area had surveillance tape of the white kia. they're also looking at cameras to see if they caught the suspects fleeing t
the filmmaker's name is nakoula basseley nakoula. the fbi says the agent has spoken with him in the last 24 hours. that name is very important. much more on the film and why it matters later in the program. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statent denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they haveuickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and three embassy staff members. we have more information for you tonight about who those people are. glenn dougherty was a former navy s.e.a.l. working as a specialist in libya. sean smith was a state department computer expert. and, of course, chris steven's was the u.s. ambassador to libya. the fourth victim is another security officer who has not been publicly identified tonight. >>>
from qaddafi and i want to know who did this and i want them turned over to our fbi. it is inexcusable. in our country if an embassy was attacked we would send thousands of troops there immediately. there were warnings in egypt and they said the mob is coming. they didn't send soldiers they just said the mob is coming, get ready. it is inexcusable. >> you have also expressed doing the same with usa to pakistan if they end up arresting or worse this doctor who helped identify the whereabouts of osama bin laden which we ultimately succeeded in gunning him down. so is there something going on in the entire region that we should just go slow on pouring money good moon after bad here? >> we had something called the arab spring. i am not sure if we are better or worse off. democracy in the middle east is sometimes bringing people into power who really don't like america. we have given billions upon billions of dollars to these countries and my question is if you want to be an ally of america act like it. if you are not going to act like an ally of ours you are going to disparage us and kill
in sending fbi forces to help investigate, find out who was responsible. but i think the thing that was so striking about chris was that he would have wanted them to be brought to justice under a rule of law that reflected the transition libya has made from a truly autocratic state where justice was never guaranteed to one where you could see these people tried in a fair courtroom and sentenced. >> you knew him well. >> i knew him well. >> for how many years? >> at least 20. we go back a long way. he was a wonderful man who had a sense of the streets as well as the elites. and despite the security restrictions that limit so many diplomats, he was always willing to go out. he saw libya through all three transition phases. two years under moammar gadhafi, then the liaison ambassador. >> and he worked hard to get rid of gadhafi through these rebels? >> absolutely. and he has reached out and he really knows the streets. the libyan people. in the same way he's known in every place i've ever known him, he has been one who has really been engaged. when he looks for what role the united states sho
. the fbi will be involved, but at this point it's very early, and nobody is definitively saying who did that. >> all right. jill, thank you very much. very good detail. we appreciate it. >> swuf state hillary clinton says there is no justification for an attack like this. we are joined by former diplomat jamie ruben on his take on what has to happen now in libya to find justice.

plots have targeted the u.s. military. critics say many of these f.b.i. cases amount to entrapment, but there is broad agreement that the home grown terrorism is a completely new phenomenon in the last 11 years. >> katherine in washington. thank you. >> shep: who knew what and when? a new and as of yet unleased report on the fast and furious gun sting operation will reportedly reveal just that. who did nothing to stop it? now fox news has obtained certain parts of that report. we'll bring them to you next. first, a live look in lower manhattan. the tribute in light is now visible. we've seen those two vertical beams shooting into the night sky over our city since 9-11. the lights first shown six months after the worst terrorist attack on u.s. soil. now organizers turn them on each 9-11. they're scheduled to stay on until dawn tomorrow. for what's around this corner... and the next. there's cash flow options from pnc. solutions to help businesses like yours accelerate receivables, manage payments, and help ensure access to credit. because we know how important cash flow is to reachi

of this on friday by saying, well, there is an fbi investigation going on. we are not going to comment on it any further. that lasted all the way until sunday, but i think really reporters -- lou: when susan rice major appearance. >> right. reporters have an obligation to find out what went on here. we have embassies all over the region. we have tens of thousands of private citizens who are in jeopardy. we need to know what the facts are. lou: there is something going on here that is peculiar, unique, unprecedented. and that is a white house that seems to be focusing primarily on representing the united states and facts abroad that are not facts at all and, in fact, are tortured by the witnesses in been gauzy by intelligence sources. there is not a single source as far as i know that corroborates what the united nations ambassador is telling the american people and what a white house is telling the american people. >> also, it is all because of this silly movie on youtube which is hardly a movie. a bunch of guys who have glue around years and this tells pretending. lou: let me corroboree what yo

the investigation. >> the team from the f.b.i. reached libya this week. iill advice congress also i am launching a accountability review board. that will be chaired by ambassador thomas pickerring. >> later in the day, members of congress briefed by clinton and the director of national intelligence on the assault by terrorists. >> they are attempting to establish whether he was kegged to people who made the attack. she a person of interest if you will. >> the story now has been changed. there was a planned premeditated attack. when we put our people around the world, at risk and don't provided a quite security. shame on us. >> the ambassador says the two seals killed in benghazi were there to protect them bass dore. >> two of the four americans were killed were there providing security. >> the two seals were in libya working for separate agency. they responded when they heard the gun fire and they killed themselves. >> bret: the decision to release gupta from gitmo was the bush administration. but the bigger story may be the presence of al-qaeda in libya and how strong they may be. >> what we ha
as the administration had said. what do you say to that? >> well, i think the evidence is still out. the fbi has just arrived. they'll do a full investigation. we'll learn a lot more later. this was coming up on september 11th. september 11, of course, is a very symbolic date throughout the world, and zawahiri who succeeded osama bin laden as leader of the al qaeda had a couple of weeks ago a call, sent a message out to the libyan people asking them to avenge the death of the number three in al qaeda that we killed with a drone in july. there are all these signs out there. we're going to have terrorist events in the future. was this premeditated? well, we'll find out. it was certainly a tense period. sdwr. >> it sounds like i'm hearing you saying that more could have been done. do you think the administration did enough to protect our men and women overseas? >> as a diplomat overseas i think they've done a great deal. sometimes you can do too much. it's a delicate balance and allowing our diplomats to get out and speak and communicate with the people and do our jobs or keeping us all locked up, i thi
many critical questions the f.b.i. is trying to resolve is how and when the mob learned the whereabouts of the annex, which was a tightly kept secret. it was there the former navy seals were killed in an attack that was better equipped and more sophisticated than the first wave. >> people on the ground have seen fragments, remain of the borders and the heavy weapons used. >> there were armed assailants that used heavy weapons. >> i don't think that people come to protest equip rpgs and other heavy weapons. obama was first briefed 90 minutes after the attack began. what emergeed since then is the missed opportunity to address the inadequate security and deaths involved, up to shifting accounts of it put forward by the administration is the dawn of a major foreign policy scandal. up with that will be investigated and dissected in hearings and official proceedings for years to come. >> bret: the first u.s. ambassador killed since 191979. thank you. >>> today, iran showed off the new defense system said designed to confront american warplanes. thursday, u.s. and allies accused iran of shipp
were killed and dozens injured on friday night. >> the wife of a missing retired fbi agent hopes to meet with the president of iran to plea for her husband's safe return. robert levenson disappeared on an island off iran's coast in 2007. now billboards with his picture are up in new york in hopes iran's president will see them when he attends the u.n. assembly next week. >> 33 years of service to the united states deserves something. >> iran's president has repeatedly turned down meeting requests from his wife. >>> at least 220 people were killed today in syria with government forces shelling the damascus suburbs. they're moving into territories the fighters have seized. the group has many soldiers who defected from syria's army to fight the regime. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic or republican jobs. i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> president obama campaigned in wisconsin for the first time in more than 200 days. wisconsin may be a surprise battleground state. months ago the obama can't believe the state's 10 electoral votes were safely in their corner. paul ryan
enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you. >> dave: thanks so much, katherine. >> to other headlines. amid chaos in the the middle east, egypt's new islamist president will be arrival in new york city for the u.n. general assembly. before the trip, mohammed morsi is saying it's town the u.s. to fix relations with the arab world and reportedly says that the u.s. needs to show respect for arab values even when it conflicts with wherein values. it's not known for sure if morsi and president obama will have a face-to-face meeting during his visit and also attending the assembly is iranian president ahmadnejad, many people are planning to protest outside of this hotel close to fox news during his time here. and a strong and decisive warning from north korea to southern neighbors threate
the middle-east-- >> reporter: and the latest informs on the fbi is that they have been in libya for almost a week, but they have yet to reach the actual site of the attack in benghazi and it would be safe to say that nearly 2 weeks after that assault, that the crime scene, if you want to call it that, is contaminated for any future prosecution. >> jamie: i hadn't read that. that's very disturbing because they truly want to get answers. i am curious, though, whether or not we need the cooperation of other governments who must -- because they want to protect their people in libya and other countries -- do we need their cooperation to get real answers? >> reporter: well, i think we need the cooperation of governments outside of libya in the longer term, on a cum of fronts. one, if we have intel jeps that shows any kind of direction of this assault from outside of libya, and second, based on my reporting so far, i think we are definitely going to find that there were these so-called foreign fighters involved in this attack, people from algeria, tunisia and maybe as far as pakistan. so if the p
. >> kimberly: they sent in the f.b.i. days later, the crime scene is compromised and now they can't find out the truth about what happened because they don't want to. >> eric: this is important. pakistani minister offered $100,000 bounty to find the filmmaker. there he is, he is one of the pakistani ministers. where is the outrage from the state department about this? >> dana: if i were president obama i would cancel my appointment on "the view" or cancel my dinner plans an demanded to see the pakistani prime minister and said to him at the u.n. knock it off now. the problem is they are the ones who apologize for america because of the united states taxpayers exercising first amendment rights and did a video. use it as an excuse. >> bob: this is the same minister in pakistan allowed the islamist schools to take place where the terrorism is being taught. this is not surprising. if 100 people were involved in this thing, if that story is true, no amount of marine, normal marine security would have stopped that. >> dana: intel could have beforehand. why do we know -- >> kimberly: that is not ev
it on "democracy now!" >> i think we have to ask if the security establishment did not want this bill and the fbi director actually goes to congress and says publicly they don't want it, why did it pass? what pushed it through? i think without question the corporate elite understand things certainly economically are about to get much worse, and i think they're worried about the occupy movement expanding. i think in the end, and this is a position, they don't trust the police to protect them and they want able to call in the army. >> that is chris hedges. marcy wheeler? >> he has made a compelling argument. the judge said because he is the reporting with terrorists, he might be at risk. jeremy scahill has also talked about how journalists in yemen, for example, have been held on obama's order for reporting closely from al qaeda. i think chris has a legitimate concern. the judge and a compelling argument. what was done about this case is a hearing in march when the government came before her and the judge said, can you tell me whether any of these plaintiffs would be held under the ndaa? they're li
since the attack. 17 by the time it airs. the fbi has yet to set foot in benghazi. what is going on? >> it is pearl harbor. >> what about when we killed that dude that started the first world war? that was kind of a big deal. >> he was a jerk. >> serbs killed him and it started a world war. instead of retaliation we go on talk shows. i want to pound them. i want to line them up and punch them and not just punch them like bonk. i want to cave in all of their faces. >> you can't make out where the eyes are. >> eyes, baby's butt. >> you know, every administration does this. >> they get crucified. >> why isn't this in the news? >> the media has to protect their candidate. >>- q. i this has to be on -- >> this has to be a fox news talk show where it never happened. >> it will never, ever happen. i don't understand where you are coming from. >> i will be big picture billy here. are you safer now than you were four years ago? i believe through president obama's leadership we are. we are droning more. we are safer. how many attacks have happened? >> when i first heard story, mye reaction wa
and put the warnings out. >> i will have to say the f.b.i. director says he loves the app. >> that's good to know. how do you like that. >> you have friends in high places. >> meet all kinds of interesting people. >>> a much better weather today. high water in caroll county so watch out for creeks and streams there. we're seeing drier air move in and cooler air move in. your bus stop forecast featuring temperatures in the 50s and 60s. right now it's mostly cloudy. we'll pick up partly cloudy in the next hour or two with breaks developing. sunrise not until 6:54. with the breeze you may just need a jacket for a while. in fact, we're looking at temperatures today a lot cooler than yesterday. lunch time 68. north wind 10 to 15. it's going to be a little brink. 70 at 3:00. high today about 72 with a 6:00 p.m. temperature still in the up ir60s. the showers -- upper 60s. the showers and storms are way off shore. a couple of light sprinkles coming across the northern neck and southern maryland but this whole area just fizzling up, probably not going to show you radar again this morning. 62 in co
the system. the fbi is saying and intelligence services telling fox business, they're doing it to distract the bank from the thick wire transfers that they enact are trying to do. it's a distraction, a head fake to get the bankers away from them try to steal money other people's accounts. gerri: is my money safe? >> i think so tonight. bankers are saying fire walls are up. end of the white house, for example, breaking news. the one new executive order french and security. does with things like this because the bill failed in the senate. gerri: to we know how it affects this? as my big question. we have an executive order. big deal. >> that's right. janet paul thomas said that would still be pretty weak.. how do you fix it? you do things like don't use, of course of your security number is a password to the user birthweight -- your birth date. the thing, what is strange about these bank attacks, bank of america, again, to attacks in today's. they both started in the morning. that makes you think, is this a concerted effort from one that we don't know? the intelligence sources are still sayi
, osama bin laden. who knows what? eric shaun is with us. eric, i know you have a lot of sources at the f.b.i. and other agencies like that. what can you tell us? >> i apologize for being out of breath 'cause i was walking down fifth avenue, which is close to our studios and i heard a jet, perhaps a 737 or a small air bus, flying low, unusually low over fifth avenue making a right. i'm not going to -- i don't have any reports on what type of plane hit the world trade center. but people looked up and it made a right toward the building. >> tragedy, it is abhorrent, it is disgusting, but i'm wondering, are these pilots, terrorists themselves? are there terrorists in the cockpit who are holding guns to a pilot's head? >> i can't imagine -- >> you can speculate completely about how this happens because ob lot of training and expertise to fly a complicated, sophisticated aircraft l it's a boeing 737 or a smaller air bus. these are not little cessnas and little pipers. so you have to wonder and raise what possibility there is with the type of scenario that was going on in the cockpit. >> our wende

to make the cuts to farm subsidies a bit bigger than the cuts to, say, the fbi. $1.2 trillion in defhich we pre much don't make a single choice about what is and is not worth funding. that administration conference call today was happening because the administration by law had to release this almost 400-page document. it was very, very long. telling us exactly where these sequestered cuts would fall. their bottom line from the text of their report, quote, education grants to state and local school districts supporting smaller classes would get cut. after-school programs and children with disabilities would suffer. the number of federal bureau of investigation agents, custom and border patrol agents, correctional officers and federal prosecutors would be slashed. the federal aviation administration's ability to oversee and manage a nation's airspace and air traffic control would be reduced. hope you don't have to fly anywhere. the department of agriculture'sesagriculture's e efforts would be curtailed. hope you don't have to eat anything. environmental protection aswrgc would be degraded.
of the temperance movement. prohibition led to everything from nascar to the mob to the fbi to csi to getting us to the moon. why? because all the money that was made in rum running as well as the legal selling of spirits, a lot of it was made by joe kennedy. joe kennedy had a kid named john. he wanted him to be president and a couple key swing states like west virginia, millions of dollars -- joe kennedy is worth $500 million in 1958. john kennedy gets in office because of that. john kennedy gets us to the moon and i contend if that carrie nation hasn't walked in sullivan's with her hatchet. >> do you have an opinion, is there like a quintessential american drink? >> no. >> no. >> i mean, look, right now in the show i drink sam adams because he was a founding father and he brewed it and i went to boston -- >> how do you keep getting nithe awesome jobs and is your next one ex poring the seedy underbelly of sobora bora hotel. >> yes, it is, and i need a co-host. are you in? >> i am. >> take her with you. >> my thoughts on the important moment being overshadowed by romney's hidden camera moment.

into the building is on-scene to help negotiators. former fbi profiler and msnbc contributor clint van zandt joins me now to talk more about this. so, clipnt, with the family member on the scene, a big help for negotiators. correct? >> well, it really does, tolls, f thomas for a couple of reasons. probably part of the ongoing negotiations. in essence, the individual in there who may or may not be armed has probably asked for a family member to be brought there. as a hostage negotiator myself, having been there and done that, so to speak, would you do something like this if you think it's going to facilitate the negotiations. if you think it's going to bring about the safe release of everybody to include the individual who's holding the one or two people hostage up there. >> let's go over some of the facts, because right now, clint what we're getting from police is we have no reports of injuries. we do know a s.w.a.t. team has arrived. at least 20 other emergency vehicles are on the scene. again, this is happening on the 16th floor of this high-rise building, the gateway center. there was one weapo

to libya and three others? >> yeah. it's difficult to say because the fbi is over there. but it's hard to carry out an investigation on the ground right now. that is such a -- libya itself is confusing. that benghazi area is one of the most confusing of all. it's an al qaeda stronghold out there. there's also al sharia which is basically a conglomeration of jihadist paramilitaries. i can't tell you with any real certainty how accurate these investigations are. a lot of people have been picked up by the libyan authorities. how guilty they really are, i don't know. we're still in the fog of war. we're in an area where we don't have that many assets on the ground. we have a libyan government which i think actually to give them credit, i think the libyan government itself is trying to work with us. unlike president morsi in egypt, libyans are trying. but it's a very new government. it's ineffective government. out in benghazi there's virtually no security. we're talking about a consulate which had, again, virtually no security. there were no military back-ups for our ambassador out there.

, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi

to the state department that there were increasing security concerns in benghazi? the fbi says it is too dangerous to be in benghazi, which is why none of them are there now. is that because the situation has worsened, or was it always too dangerous? >> as we determine the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. that is when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> about a day after? >> it took a while to get some feedback as to what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a threat intelligence reporting back -- eight to read -- there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups were seeking to coalesce, but there was not anything specific, and certainly not anything specific to the consulate that i am aware of. as far as the risks of the fbi reported, you really would have to ask them why they made that determination. >> did you make the state department awa
just last friday. the fbi says adel daoud was intent on killing as many americans as possible. according to the criminal complaint, the 18-year-old from hillside illinois drove a green jeep cherokee full of what he thought was explosives to a downtown chicago nightclub and then attempted to detonate it. the teenager first came to the fbi's attention in 2011 when he sent e-mails sympathizing with bin laden, writing in one that osama wasn't crazy for wanting to destroy america. eventually court papers say daoud met with an undercover agent posing as an extremist. he picked the unnamed nightclub from google maps and allegedly told the agent he wanted the attack to be massive enough to make it in the news, like tonight. authorities say daoud was bent on terrorism, vowing repeatedly that it was in his heart. >> we're going to see more and more examples of this type of self-radicalization. this is the new wave in the terrorist threat, but it doesn't mean it's a threat that we can't deal with. >> a kid that i know, adel is an angel. he helped me -- my husband was away, and he helped
